Having problems using Zsh/Oh my Zsh
#2

You should always provide checksums for your ISOs, or better a signature.
Without it, it’s impossible to check integrity.


#3

Looks great! If it wasn’t for the panel, it could be mistaken with Plasma.


#4

It’s nice your showing LXQt some love. It is an under-apreciated desktop. Nicely done.


#5

Maybe Librewish should work together with the current LxQT maintainer?


#6

I like it! I have been playing around with it for a little while now on my “distro hopping” computer that has like 3 different distros on using a live usb and just pulled the plug to replace one of the other distros that are on it. The only complaints I can find is it maybe has more programs on it to start out than I would maybe want (guess I could have went with the minimal) a few of the icons in the “task manager” widget seem to be a little too dark but over all I like it. I am glad to see LxQT come along and how well it seems that it and peices of KDE seem to mesh well together.


#7

the icons are too dark but i could not do anything about it as if i choose light ones the desktop items get too bright and on white background they are not distinguishable .


#8

i think i forgot to add appimagelauncher

and about pcmanfm-qt it wont open as root
i just have to add switch user command as
lxqt-sudo dbus-launch %s
and it will open as root


#9

Nice! I always felt that lxqt and kwin belonged together.


#10

Nice - that makes my experiments obsolete :slight_smile:


#11

if you encounter any issue.i suggest using lxqt git packages from aur after install as they include many fixes and new features.the git packages are not in manjaro repo the ones in repo are outdated .


#12
cp -b -f /usr/share/color-schemes/BreathDark.colors ~/.config/kdeglobals

is the solution


#13

I shall give that a shot tonight.


#14

created another iso’s with dark theming and some minor profile changes
and replaced juffed-qt5 with notepadqq
added zramswap by default

#16

made some changes to lxqt dark theme.changed color red to maia.and some transparancy change.


#17

I’ve installed and works great, just a few minor changes but it goes well so far, thank you for this version, I also use xfce and w1nd0ws in other partitions but lxqt is my favorite :slightly_smiling_face:


#18

looks nice, just downloaded/installed in vm the lxqt-kwin-dark. ive never used lxqt before but i like the kwin combo. good job :+1:. ive only played for a few minutes but the only things ive noticed are 1. the launch menu closes fairly quick on its own if your not moving the mouse around. 2. firefox is using a white font on white background. easily fixed though. looks pretty damn good for being right around 450mb ram on desktop only.


#19

if using firefox i have given dark reader extension in which makes everything dark.ublock origin
decentralys.https anywhere.privacy badger.
just have to change firefox theme to dark.in regular edition.
